The Law Students’ Debating Society of Ireland

Established in 1830, the Law Students’ Debating Society of Ireland (LSDSI) is a student–run organisation that benefits from considerable support from King’s Inns. 

In recent years the LSDSI has acted as a student society within King’s Inns having evolved in its role from a debating society to become a society that represents all facets of student life at King’s Inns.


Each year the student body elects an Auditor who assembles a committee with specific positions designated to oversee mooting, social activities, education and sports. The Auditor, as well as convening committee meetings, hosts an Inaugural Address each year which is normally chaired by a judge of the Supreme Court.
